Bodyssey! Canada’s Premier Face and Body Art Convention
August 26 – 30, 2010
Bodyssey is Canada’s Premier Face and Body Art Convention, gathering face and body art instructor’s, students and competitors from all over the world. This will be my first year attending, painting and teaching web classes at Bodyssey, I am super excited that my hometown is going to represent and showcase the spectacular artists in our industry. We have some of the greatest talents in Canada including two reigning World Face and Body Painting Champions Lucie Brouillard in Drumheller Alberta and Alex Hansen, Montreal, Quebec. We are also lucky to have organizers like Marion Brown and Liz Mortlock who are dedicated to bringing Face and Body Art into the forefront of artistic genres.
Liz Mortlock is one of the legacy organizers of Bodyssey, one of my closest painting collegues who taught me all the newbie stuff, and the owerner of Puttin’ on the Glitz – an online retail store featuring face and body art supplies that she manages herself.
Liz asked me to help breathe some life into a new website for Bodyssey, since face and body art are so close to my heart, and this event is in my backyard – I wanted to make sure that the organizers and attendees had a website they could be proud of, and, something that they were able to devlop and maintain on their own. I help out with more complicateed bits of code or strange formatting issues – but they maintain this site and people are watching! It’s all very exciting for me to watch a website project go from concept to implimentation to bursting with content!
Bodyssey is a great example of a website that I consult, coach, teach and devlop alongside the owner.
